Strap-on for Men – The Beginner's Guide to Using a Strap-On

By Ksenia Sobchak

You may be living in a thinly-populated area – or just one that lacks a sex novelty store. Either way, finding accessories to jazz up your sex life may have been difficult - until now. The internet has come to your rescue, and online retailers of novelties have proliferated.

One of the great benefits of online retailing is the huge increase in the variety of products on offer. For example, dildos. One of the oldest sex toys in history, the dildo has been around for thousands of years. In fact, the earliest known one was found in a German cave and dates back to 30,000 BC. Mankind's fascination with the dildo has clearly not waned with time.

A quick survey of online retailers reveals a dizzying array of dildos for sale. There are dildos with grips, fetish dildos in pink and black, and ones with undulating shapes in order to ensure they stay inserted. There are veined, fleshy-feeling dildos for realism and others that are ribbed and shaped for added friction. Some are curved for G-spot stimulation or – for the men – P (prostate)-spot pleasure. There are double-ended dildos so that partners can share in the action.

Dildos are also made from different materials. Glass dildos lend themselves to temperature play, as do steel ones. A more common material is silicone, which can be easily molded to any shape and is easily sterilized.

Strap-on Harnesses

Many dildos designed for strap-on play. This requires another article in plentiful supply from online retailers – the harness.

Again, there are a variety of styles and materials to choose from. The basic one is the 2-strap, which has one band going around the waist and another through the wearer's legs. A 3-strap harness is attached around the waist and thighs. Corsets can have the dildo built right in, depending on the material.

Synthetic harnesses are cheap, durable and easily cleaned. Leather requires more maintenance. Plastic can be transparent and is, of course, also easy to clean. Latex, rubber or PVC harnesses sometimes actually incorporate a dildo in its construction.

More Reasons to Go Online

If selection isn't enough to get you shopping online, consider the discretion factor. You can choose and pay for your dildo and harness from the privacy of your own home. Online retailers ship in discreet packages and, similarly, a numbered or initialed vendor name appears on your credit card bill. In addition to having the store as close as your computer, you save on the gas and parking you would otherwise have used to visit that inconvenient store. And you aren't limited in the hours you can shop. You can check out consumer reviews and comparison shop with other retailers any time of the day.

And finally, take a look at the price differential with online items. Without the overhead costs of a bricks and mortar store, and staffing and storage issues, the online retailer can offer a greater selection – much more cost effectively.

Convenience, selection and price – there's no better time to buy a strap-on than now. And no better place than online.
